I think I get what Ruxor was trying to say before he got brutally downrated into oblivion. While the Elitist Jerks has every right to run their website the way they want, I and many others strongly disagree with their attitude. I find it just plain arrogant, regardless what disclaimers they make you agree to. For example: Despite what some illiterate mouth-breathers might say in defense, /b/ is the asshole of the internet. They warn you about it beforehand but that doesn't make the behavior found on the board excusable. EJ is the same only on the opposite side of the spectrum. Rather than excessive chaos, it's extreme order (and it's about wow). Extreme moderation creates a certain prestige to posting on EJ which in turn can translate into arrogance and/or narcissism among the posters (and moderators). An infraction based on misplaced punctuation is almost sickening. I believe there are better ways to filter out morons than Grammar-Nazism. Now, its foolish of me to start judging Aldriana and other EJ users especially since I haven't taken part in an Elitist Jerks thread in quite a while nor do I know any of the Moderators personally. Having said that, none of this should be taken as fact, merely my opinion. Anyway, I do disagree with the rest of Ruxor's post. Aldriana uses math to create optimal rotations, gearing guides, etc. So despite what you believe, there are very few rogues if any who will play "better" using a different playstyle. I for one appreciate the various spreadsheets that Aldriana has provided the WoW community with. I got my rogue to 80 just prior to Ulduar's release and I would have been utterly lost without them. I'm also glad he recieved an item in his honor. If anyone deserves it, it's him. Thanks Chase for the insightful interview!To finish off:"we are easily the most reviled class in WoW. ""Playing a rogue has become a thankless job.""I'd like to take this opportunity to reverse that trend."Good luck with that. "lol, shadowstep+ambush" in 10-19 bgs says hello. ;)
